Our shop is out in the country (10 miles from Bath and 16 from Bristol), in old farm buildings in the grounds of Norton Green Garden Centre in Chilcompton.  The Post Code is BA3 4RR. You'll find that we have plenty of free parking space within a few feet of our door, and excellent wheelchair access to both the shop and our workshop.

We are open over the LONG WEEKEND - Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays between 10 am and 4 pm (on Sunday we open at 10.30) we are  closed on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays - other than for group visits, Exhibitions or for dire quilting emergencies!

We now have well over 3000 fabrics; scores of quilting books as well as all the other things you’d expect to find.

Before, during or after your shopping you are warmly invited to relax in our easy chairs, and enjoy a cup of coffee (or tea - lots of choices) - two if you like!  Some call it our crèche for men!

We have a full programme of classes with an excellent team of teachers. In addition, we have open house every Monday and Friday for whoever cares to use the facilities - and new quilters are welcomed at any time. Please call the shop for details - 01761 239333.


Free counters!

Midsomer Quilting is less a shop, more
 the home of friends with fabric for sale.

EXHIBITION OF 12X12 QUILTS IN AID OF DOROTHY HOUSE HOSPICE

You are warmly invited to another display of scores of 12”x12” mini-quilts created in aid of Dorothy House Hospice. Open daily from Dec. 2nd  to Dec.19th, at 1030 to 4 pm


For the past six years we have challenged our visitors to create 12”x12” mini-quilts, on a given theme. The quilts are then exhibited at the shop. Most of them are donated by their creators for sale, by secret auction, during the exhibition. Since 2011 the annual Challenges have raised over £10,000 for charity; the last four of them for Dorothy House Hospice. Last year £3,030 was raised for the Hospice.

The examples shown above include quilts made by a 10 year-old, three international prize winners, a total beginner and others from South Africa and the USA  (as well as someone who lives just up the road!).   This year the display of 170 quilts on the theme ‘Mystery, Myth and Magic’ includes the 1000th 12”x12” created since the Challenges began.
